Valentine’s Mantel 2013, Pretty in Pink

Join the 2nd talk with Poise. Do you remember that first talk, when you learned about how your body works? That talk about puberty, monthly cycles and the work of your changing body? Poise is giving away a $100. gift card. You could win!

Pink and white are on my Valentine’s mantel this year, along with pieces of white pottery. I tried to keep it fairly simple and think I succeeded.  Cute white birds and fresh flowers help to remind me that Spring will soon be here.

The windows came from the old house I used to live in. If you click on the link, you will be taken to an old post with pictures of the old house……the old posts always crack me up!


I got the lantern at a Pottery Barn outlet.

The carnations lasted for a long time but sadly the tulips didn’t.

I loved the way they looked bending over the side of the vase.

White pottery is such a great collection. You can come up with ways to use it over and over again. I have so many pieces but still keep looking for unusual or vintage pieces.

In the pitcher are twigs with tissue paper flower buds.

Here’s how to make the flower buds: cut a circle of tissue paper, ( I cut different sizes),  put a dab of glue in the center and fold in half,  then fold in half the other way and squish together to form a flower bud.  Then glue them in different spots on the branches. I used a low temperature glue gun to keep from getting burned.


Happy Valentine’s day, how are you celebrating?


Thanks for visiting! Debra (((xx)))




  1. That’s a very clever idea for creating buds…longer lasting and neat and tidy. I wonder if I can duplicate it with yellow for a forsythia look…probably.

    It was very pleasant going over to the old house. I think you were too hard on yourself. So much of what you did was just beautiful. Perhaps not your own style, but beautiful. The turkey dressed all in sage was outstanding. I’d hate to see what John would say if he didn’t get his jelled cranberry sauce fresh from the can. Ha!

  2. I love your spring / valentine mantle! Gorgeous! And I may have to copy your “buds” you made. I went to your old post as well, what a beautiful old home! I always wanted to live in an old house but my husband doesn’t share my want, lol. And yes, I have also learned never to deviate from the “planned” meals of holidays! Grumpy old men! :)

  3. Your mantle does look so pretty – your pink tissue paper buds look very lovely too!

  4. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think
    that you should write more about this subject, it may not be a taboo
    subject but typically folks don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!

  5. Having read this I believed it was extremely informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this information together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
